Four more hours til the break of dawn I get up early but you’re already gone Step out on the balcony and spark a bowl Your absence is the maw of a pitch black hole The event horizon caught up to me I peer into the dark but there’s nothing to see Gravity gravely pulls us down Silence is the only sound We were all swallowed up by the longest night This day we were welcomed to the night Feel it coming, feel it coming Eighty-eight days til the sun comes back Winter’s white walls are on the attack Windchill, windowsill, freezer burn Shield me for loving you, love I spurn Baby, baby, baby, don’t look back Fine young cannibals on the attack Can I ever mend and make things right? Once we were welcome to the light
Fields 03:54
tick tock, corn crop, I lie in the dirt I fall deep into your iris like warm burnt earth I could do nothing but lie here, cursed to feel your love grow until it hurts I bite you, you squeeze, down in the fields we lie flat on our bellies for that perfect feeling flutter by, monarch, butterfly wings when you arc your back back and the oriole sings you climb the trees while i click, click, click and the swaying of the breeze 'til i feel seasick and lovesick effect of the endorphin high lying in the fields, not a cloud in the sky come, come, come, come give me a kiss I can't stop aching for your mouth bruised bliss press your lips up to my lips grind your hips into my hips if our love can survive this minor glitch the refrain will go off without a major hitch and we can spend each day in each others arms where neither of us ever come to harm i'm not one to dwell on the past i'd rather live in the present with your sassy ass there's a finite time we have left ahead let's do it all now, we can sleep when we're dead tick tock, corn crop, we lie in the fields and laugh loud like love is the finest meal I can feel nothing but your warm embrace and your hot hot hot hot breath on my face tick tock, corn crop, I lie in the fields I fall deep into the sky on a ferris wheel I could do nothing but lie here, high to feel your love grow until i die mesmerized, i wait on my knees for the rapture to finally come to me when you take my hands within your hands and whisk me away to a better land you think maybe i'm dreaming dreams the fascination with the moments in-between but the here and now i spend with you is the only reason my dreams come true come, come, come, come jump the shark our loveboat is about to embark we'll set sail on the seven seas to a life together of whatever you please if our love can survive this sad refrain the coda will bring you back again and we can spend our lives together every day gets better and better i'm not one to live alone no one's an island but sometimes a stone there's a piece of advice i find hard to swallow you can't fall in love if your heart's so shallow tick tock, corn crop, I lie in the fields pressed to my chest is the lie i feel it's awake, a weight that won't let go it's something everyone should know
Pheasant Run 03:40
please don't run away I had a minor mid-life crisis and then a revelation of how nice it is the wisdom of ages cured my niceguyitis I took my bike outside for a casual ride but kept on pedalling 'til my heart finally died Went to the top non-stop to be the cream of the crop I said you shoulda left Ottawa before this next cut dropped but I packed up my words and made my way to the 'burbs I settled in Pheasant Run on the Barrhaven curbs pipe up in the back and tighten the slack I said you'll never make the big leagues acting like that I got a first class ticket balcony seat I got plants and animals and two storey treats all summer long with all the soccer moms balls in the goalie's hands but your net's all wrong traces of the fall set in boredom is a mortal sin Autumn's colours beautiful but I can't believe the shape I'm in Can't believe the shape I'm in Mightier than the Mighty Quinn but all this autumn colourin' is making me shake from within give me all your suffering all your extra sin and skin I'm Heathcliff in Wuthering gimme all your loverin' please don't run away

This place has strange attractions other world reactions but i don't mind it feels like home strange attractions lead me back, back to you but i'm not staying here i'm just passing through you said it would hurt you but it would pass this place has strange attractions just making it up one day it will all catch up to me all this will go up in my face you said it would hurt you but that you didn't mind strange attractions keep me lodged in space i don't like it but i'm not afraid to show my face you said it would hurt you but that you didn't mind


Originally released in 2013, remastered in 2018. This is the first album I recorded after moving to Barrhaven. It is a concept piece about living in the 'burbs, and being ok with growing up and growing old. It was originally released under the moniker March Hawk, and was an attempt at a rap album (really more glitch/electronica than hip hop). File under "trying too hard".


released October 29, 2013
